“Excellent Stay”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

Excellent location - just a few minutes walk from the centre but slightly away from the hussle and bussle of the town. The room was of a high standard, comfortable and very clean. The gym facilities were also good. Can highly recommend the RAW japanese restaurant.

Hotel was fab and we were already upgraded before we even arrived. The executive suite was just amazing and a lovely surprise !! The room was huge with a fab balcony and massive bath and shower. The cocktails in the bar are very tasty !!
Staff were so friendly and helpful and nothing was too much for them. Short walk from the town - around 5 mins if you go through the bus station ( nice short cut ! ) breakfast was lovely , didn't eat in the evening but the food did look incredible. Will definitely be staying here again!
Didn't have chance to go to the spa but heard it's lovely.
Thank you Radisson Blu for a fab Easter stay !! X

Stayed 1 night and 2 days for work. Lovely staff, very attentive and excellent service with a nice warm personal touch. Bent over backwards to do their best.
Nice hotel, with views of the Aran Islands if you can see past the industrial tanks in the docks. Overlooks Lough Atalia.

Easy enough to find too. Just follow directions for Galway East and the Docks and you will find it. If you arrive by train it is even easier. A lot of rail travellers use the car parks here and walk to the station.

Room was clean and comfortable. You can open a window, which I love as I can't abide aircon. My room had an inward view of the hotel itself. If you are looking for scenery specify a room overlooking Lough Atalia.

Good high speed internet. Nice food. Found no specific faults.
It is a Radisson Blu, so a little clinical in feel. A good business hotel made better by the friendliness of the staff.

I didn't realise there was a pool and spa or I would have brought swimming togs :(

Room Tip: Ask for view of the Lough

Just spent a few days in the Radisson for a conference - Albeit work it was a fantastic experience . I arrived a little early to use the pool / Thermal suites are as I had never used these before . It was a sea of tranquility to switch off in the suites and then up to the hottub looking over Lough Atalia- it was a calm evening so made it even more enjoyable being outside.
My Room was facing Lough Atalia which has spectacular views but do remember it does look onto a busy road - you will only notice this if you are not used to road traffic but living in Dublin it did not bother me as I didn't hear one siren during my stay!
The breakfast buffet is amazing and is lacking nothing everything is laid out for you - so much to pick and choose and as with everything there is a window of a rush hour as such if during the week as this is a business hotel breakfast can be busy but worth it.
I think i had sampled all catering options before leaving from Breakfast to canapes , buffet lunch, room service, bar food , soup and sandwiches in the bar and on every occasion we were not disappointed. The staff are all very friendly and helpful and nothing is a problem for them !
The location is so handy next door to the bus station, across the road form the Train station and a 5 min walk to any other amenities that may be needed . I look forward to returning there for a weekend for pleasure and not business !

Myself and my boyfriend haven't had much time together lately, so as a surprise he brought me to Galway for 2 nights and we stayed in the radisson. The whole experience helped make our break fantastic. The hotel is in a great location just a short walk to everything. Our room was spacious and the bed was so comfortable I didn't want to get out of it.
I got a treatment at the spirit one spa and used the thermal suite. It was the most relaxing experience I've had in a while.
The breakfast buffet... Wow! Such a variety of fresh food to choose from, really set us up for the day. We had a great stay and can't recommend it highly enough.
My one and only tiny Criticism would be the steam room in the pool area, bit of a funky smell in it and there's rust running down the wall.
